I think the flavors have just blended better with a few extra days in the bottle.

Coolio. I was planning on waiting 3 weeks, but great to hear that it's tasty after less than that.

Now I just need convince the wife to give me 3-4 hours without parenting duties, and we're good to go

Brew weekend. Making a few changes, but mostly the same recipe. I bought a blow off valve, so it'll be the first try at that, too.

Here's hoping it all goes well

Any reason why you went DME and LME for the extracts? I was thinking of doing the reverse, since I can't get wheat LME at my LHBS.
just what my LHBS had on had the day I was putting it together, You can use any combination of LME or DME. Feel free to do all DME, or all LME.

I ended up crushing the grains by hand (Midwest didn't ship my mill), but it got done!

Pitched 1L of 3068 w/ starter. Took about 7-8 hours before krausen showed up, but it's there, and it's bubbling away every 1.5 seconds. can't wait to try this out.

I was gonna toss in some hollertau, but decided I wanted to taste the beer as you designed it... so if it's good, I'll start playing a bit later on

Edit: here's a pic of the brew after 18hrs

I'm gonna be bottling this on Monday or Tuesday, and was wondering whether anybody's used the Northern Brewer Priming Calculator for their priming solution? According to them, for 5gal of dunkeweizen at 70F, I want to use 6.38oz of corn sugar. Considering I'll lose a bit of volume to trub and yeast, I'll say 4.8 gal, and it's still over 6oz.

I found two different priming tables - http://www.mashspargeboil.com/achiev...ome-brew-beer/
and http://hbd.org/brewery/library/YPrimerMH.html

The first recommends 2.5 – 2.9 volumes of CO2 for a Weizen/Weissbier – the second recommends 3.3 – 4.5 volumes. I’ve been using the lower range, and it seems about right.

Maybe I'll try an even 3.0 and go from there

One caution - There could be a possibility of bottle bombs with high carbonation. Yooper wrote in another thread "Also, some of those guidelines (I think weizens?) will cause bottle bombs or at least lots and lots of foaming in a bottle." I don't know her source of information, but she is very knowlegible.
